The author

I am a year 12 student in Mount Albert Grammar school. I have loved to draw since I was 5 and have continued to do so. Although I am new to digital art, I am very passionate to learn about new techniques every so often. I want to improve my drawings by using every opportunity I get to draw about unfamiliar, meaningful ideas.

I am a quiet person but I like to express myself through my drawings. As a year 12, I do not get to draw as much as I used to because we have to be worried about exams but every time I have free time, I grab my pencil and let it do its thing.

I chose my subject matters depending on my mood and thoughts about a particular topic. I like to be unique with my drawing and painting techniques even though sometimes the outcome may not satisfy me. I'm always keen to try new things!

I find drawing enjoyable, almost as much as I find rollercoasters fun :)

Overview

I wanted to express in this artwork how some people who aim high aren't aware that they are doing a lot, almost too much academically, or at work to which their health slowly start to deteriorate. They do such back breaking work even after they have reached their goal, no matter how challenging it was and then are unable have a good rest (even for a minute).

The keyhole in the artwork represents our point of view. We could be parents, friends, teacher, colleague, etc. who are bystander, not doing anything to help the poor struggling peers. We are just peeking through keyhole, not being able to decide to help or not.

I wanted the disproportionateness and illusions to depict my subject matter's struggle who cannot find a single way to overcome this unspoken 'disability'.
